Alien: A Biomechanical Symphony. 


This symphonic performance covers lot of territory, from Alien to Alien: Resurrection, even to Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.


From the Varèse Sarabande website:

In July of 2009, we decided to mark the 30th anniversary of director Ridley Scott’s groundbreaking 1979 film Alien by paying special tribute to Jerry Goldsmith’s landmark score from the film at the closing night gala of Fimucité 3 in Tenerife. Specifically for this occasion, we created a unique symphonic work called Alien: A Biomechanical Symphony, which presented music from all four original Alien films (with the sequel scores being composed by James Horner, Elliot Goldenthal and John Frizzell). And, as a special encore, we also included Brian Tyler’s exciting Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem. Diego Navarro led the Tenerife Film Orchestra and Choir in this thrilling concert premiere.

For the first time you can actually watch the musicians as they perform such classic film music cues as Goldsmith’s Breakaway, Horner’s Futile Escape and Goldenthal’s Adagio!

I’d buy the thing just for the three tracks mentioned in the last paragraph. I’m not tech-savvy, so you should be certain that the site’s disclaimer, “The NTSC DVD is Region Free,” means your player can read it.
